Hi doctor
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 12 days ago.

Regarding EMED certificates which is what you are referring to, they can be written to sign someone off work, or alternatively signed to request the employer provides amended duties for work.

Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 12 days ago.

There is no fit note to approve someone is fit for work, that is either at your own discretion or via Occupational Health if your employer has one.

Hi
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 12 days ago.

If you require a letter, then this wouldn't be a fit note, but a report, and therefore you would need to ask your GP for this, but they can charge for this.

Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 12 days ago.

I have not accepted the call on the above as do not want you being charged given what I have said.

If you still would like to speak then please let me know and I can call you.
